She believes that her kids are better people for seeing her embrace all that comes with the disease with a positive attitude. In her blog (bbhwithms.com) she talks about the good, the bad and the downright funny shit that happens when living with a chronic illness. She has begun to use cannabis to help with the chronic pain and is now also sharing her “MMJ Adventures” with her readers.

Michael describes himself as:

Soon to be 49. Diagnosed in 2009 with primary progressive MS, so over time I’ve swapped my little sports car for a sporty wheelchair! Frequent visitor to my local minor injuries unit and this is usually for stitches after impressive falls!

Self confessed geek who loves a new gadget, IT manager and husband to @wheelchichome who after I was diagnosed three months after we were married, turned her design skills to creating a fabulous yet accessible home.

Rattles when shaken due to the various number of tablets taken throughout the day and I’m also a Fampyra responder! Did I mention I’m a purveyor of all things Gin? Lurks somewhere in West Sussex.

Episode 6: Ami
ami
Ami was diagnosed with MS in August 2013, after having her first major relapse in 2006. Ami has always been interested in the alternative side of medicine and has personally chosen to treat her MS holistically, and drug free for as long as possible. Ami’s love of complementary therapies as well as her search to manage her own MS symptoms led her to retrain in Bach flower remedies and intuitive led and channelled healing. Ami runs Honeysuckle Healing in Bristol UK and offers 1-1 tailor made treatments both in person and via SKYPE/phone (for those outside of the area). Ami believes in an individual approach to MS, looking at the person rather than the illness. She is passionate about self empowerment and supports her clients to access their own self-help toolkit for MS management. Ami’s treatments complement orthodox medicine and she believes in a holistic approach to healthcare. Ami writes a monthly newsletter which you can sign up to through her website, which provides wellbeing tips and features to support your journey outside of treatment. Ami also writes regular blogs, featured on her website. Ami believes that we are all individuals and feels strongly that we should be treated that way, especially in the case of chronic illness.
